Style Support / Re: Setting a background image and tiling it.
« on: December 06, 2011, 01:00:34 am »
Find this in the css:
Code: [Select]
 background: #252525 url( repeat-x;
 font: 78%/130% verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif;
 margin: 0
 padding: 15px 5%;

Change this line:
background: #252525 url( repeat-x;
Change the url of the image to the url of your image and change repeat-x to repeat

Only thing you can do currently is to swap the images by following the directions in this thread:

Note:  if the link to the image swapper (in the directions) does not work:  go down a few posts and you'll see a post by me about how to do it manually (but do all of the steps from the start of the directions first)      Probably should edit that post to put the manual code IN it... Ill ask Seldom if he'll edit it.

Do that in Admin > Layout Settings > Theme Settings
Put a check in "Show group key on board index"

No that will not work.  You have to look through the css.   Find every image url in it.  Look in the folders for the theme you downloaded and find those exact image files.  Upload them to an image host.   Get the direct url for them and replace the urls in the css.    Yeah its a lot of work but its the only way you can do it.

Make sure the theme is for smf2.0   That is the only version that will work.   And again:  if the theme has changes to the template(s) you wont be able to use it and get the result you are looking for.

Thanks, and how can I do that? Is there any sites that I can find good themes where I can just use CSS? There aren't many good themes on this place.

If you download a theme from there the theme package will have all of the images in it.   You would need to upload them to an image host (like Photobucket) and replace the links in the css with YOUR links.    There are dozens of places in the css where you will have to do this.    To answer your second question -  its not possible to download a css that will just work.    The image links have to be replaced with your own links so it can find the images to display them.

The only themes you may even be able to do it with are those that have not altered the templates as there is no way you can do that.

ITs just a few posts down from the instuctions:

I am pretty sorry for distrubing you Simply Sibyl. I have an error. May you please tell me where i should put the code? Because when i put it into Headers / Footers And swap it with old image to New image nothing happends. May you please explain me little more how i should do this. This is very needed for me. Please Simply Sibyl May you help me out with this problem?

The code goes in your Footer.    Go back thru the directions and double check that you did it all correctly.  Make SURE that you set up rank images for the ones you want to swap and that they are working correctly first.  Once you are sure that you did, if you still have problems post the exact code you used so someone can look at it to see why it is not working correctly.

There are a couple of ways to do it.
You can replace the forum title at the top left with a small banner image.
To do that go to Admin > Layout Settings > Theme Settings
Where it says  "Logo Image URL" put the direct link to your image

Or you can use html for the banner image and put it in your Header.
Do that in Admin > Style Manager
You'ld do the html like this (it would center it at the top of the page)

Code: [Select]
<div style="text-align:center;"><img src="image url goes here" alt="" /></div>

Should at least explain what it is in the announcement topic and update the news in the admin cp

You can setup your forum with Tapatalk and view it on mobile devices using the tapatalk app.
Googling it is easy enuf to find out exactly what it is

That css must be for an earlier RC version.  The css has to be one that was created for smf 2.0 final.  There were many changes leading up to the final version.

This is a new thing, but he started his other services (SMFForFree) back in '05.
I thaught this basically was smfforfree?
SMF For Free and Creataforum are two separate services, both run by the same guy.
The forums on SMF for Free use the 1.* branch of the smf software.
The forums on Createaforum use the 2.* branch of the smf software.

It shows in their Profile...  if you up it to 10 percent it will show up in posts.   
The default settings are that they are added to the watch list once it gets to 10 percent.  You can change it to 5 percent in Warning level for user watch on the settings page then it should show up at 5 percent too.

Its not going to show a warning level unless there has actually been one issued.

General Support / Re: Can i change my forum url
« on: September 24, 2011, 10:09:46 pm »
The url cannot be changed.   The only thing you can do would be to purchase a domain name from a domain host (like Godaddy) and park it on your forum.

Perhaps only activiate it for select accounts, like mine for having the idea, and others for paying for it?
What you are missing here is in his reply (and he did mean "stop" in his reply)
Offering the use of the option as a paid addon would not stop what he was refering to.
Someone could pay for the feature, set it up then at some point decide to no longer use the forum service and not bother to disable the feed settings before deserting the forum
